The choice of technical undergarments depends on a number of factors, including your planned activity, weather conditions and your own comfort. Here are a few tips to help you choose the right technical undergarments:
Material: Choose technical materials specific to your needs. Technical underwear is often made from synthetic fabrics such as polyester, nylon or polypropylene, or merino wool blends for better moisture and temperature management.
Moisture management: Opt for underwear that quickly wicks perspiration away from your skin to the surface of the fabric, where it can evaporate. This helps keep your skin dry and regulates your body temperature.
Thermal insulation: Depending on the season and temperature, choose technical underwear with different thicknesses and levels of thermal insulation. Thicker underwear is suitable for colder conditions, while lighter underwear is suitable for warmer conditions.
Fit: Make sure that the fit of technical underwear is comfortable and does not cause chafing or wrinkles. Tight-fitting underwear can wick moisture better, while looser cuts may be more comfortable for certain activities.
Seams and construction: Look for underwear with flat seams or minimal seams to avoid chafing and skin irritation, especially during intense physical activity.
Anti-odour: Some technical underwear is treated to reduce odours, which can be useful for prolonged outdoor activities.
Activity-specific: Think about the activity you'll be doing. For example, for skiing or hiking in cold weather, thermal underwear is essential, while for running in warm weather, you might prefer lightweight, breathable underwear.
Care: Check the manufacturer's care instructions to make sure you take proper care of your technical underwear, to prolong its life.
